“I am gonna tweet the TOP TEN PORKIEST PROJECTS in the Omnibus Spending bill the Congress is about to pass,” Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., wrote on his Twitter page yesterday.
“#10. $1.7M “for a honey bee factory” in Weslaco, TX
“#9. $475,000 to build a parking garage in Provo City, Utah
“#8. $200,000 “tattoo removal violence outreach program to could help gang members or others shed visible signs of their past.”
“#7. $300,000 for the Montana World Trade Center

“#2. $2 million ‘for the promotion of astronomy’ in Hawaii –
“#1. $1.7 million for pig odor research in Iowa”
All sound like “shovel-ready” projects to me, Sen. McCain.

By now, everyone has probably read about Hollyweird’s latest stunt. Some are in IRAN on a completely apolitical, “cultural exchange”.
The absolute BEST take on it, IMO, comes from Pat Dollard.

UPDATE AT BOTTOM
I have mentioned Charles Rust-Tierney before. Rust-Tierney was president of the ACLU’s Virginia affiliate from 1993 to 2005. He had coached youth baseball, soccer and football teams since 2003, according to law enforcement officials. He once served as president of Arlington Little League. He fought strenuously against anti-pornography filters on public library computers.
On 07Sept07, Charles Rust-Tierney was sentenced in Alexandria, VA to 7 years in federal prison by U.S. District Court Judge T.S. Ellis III for purchasing child rape and torture videos, which he accessed on the computer in his 11-yr-old son’s bedroom.
From The Washington Post 09/07/07:
Rust-Tierney was arrested Feb. 23 after his Arlington home was searched by officers from Arlington police and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. The raid was part of a nationwide initiative — Project Safe Childhood — that was created in February 2006 by U.S. Attorney General Alberto R. Gonzales.
Authorities said Rust-Tierney used his home computer to purchase Internet access to commercial child pornography Web sites at least five times between March 2005 and October 2006, spending about $420. During one two-week span, he accessed more than 850 digital image and video files of child pornography on one site. Many of these files showed children under the age of 12 being forced to engage in sexual acts with adult males, authorities said.
A federal magistrate who declined to release him in March described the images she viewed as “the most perverted and nauseating and sickening type of child pornography” she had seen in 10 years on the bench.
Ellis also refused to release Rust-Tierney, saying he posed “a serious risk of harm to the community.” The judge added that “the term ‘child pornography’ does not convey the depravity” of the images that were downloaded.
Here’s the rub. Charles Rust-Tierney IS NOT LISTED ON THE NATIONAL SEX OFFENDER REGISTRY. Charles Rust-Tierney is NOT LISTED ON THE VIRGINIA SEX OFFENDER REGISTRY.**
What’s going on here? Is he being protected? If so, how and by whom? I sent an email to DOJ inquiring about this and they referred me to the state registry. Today I sent them the second notification about Rust-Tierney.
THERE ARE NO PHOTOS OF CHARLES RUST-TIERNEY ANYWHERE ON THE INTERNET. WHY? WHO SCRUBBED THEM AND WHY?
The closest I could find is his ex-wife, Diann Rust-Tierney, an anti-death penalty advocate:
And Gabriel Rust-Tierney (?son), a UVA student who was arrested with 3 others for kidnapping another student:
**UPDATE: IRECEIVED THIS EMAIL FROM VSP:
Curiouser and curiouser…..

From the Wall Street Journal:
Under the Freedom of Information Act, the Washington Post has obtained a few of the former FBI director’s secret files. According to a Thursday front-page story, Hoover was “consumed” with exposing a (nonexistent) relationship between a gay photographer and Jack Valenti, the late film industry lobbyist who was then an aide to Lyndon Johnson. Hoover’s M.O. was to amass incriminating personal information as political blackmail.
But as the Post reports in passing, the dossier also reveals that Mr. Moyers — then a special assistant to LBJ — requested in 1964 that Hoover’s G-men “investigate two other administration figures who were ‘suspected as having homosexual tendencies.'”
Amid “bits of dirt on figures such as Martin Luther King,” Judge Silberman found a 1964 memo from Mr. Moyers directing Hoover’s agents to investigate Barry Goldwater’s campaign staff for evidence of homosexual activity. A few weeks before, an LBJ aide named Walter Jenkins had been arrested in a men’s bathroom, and Mr. Silberman wrote that Mr. Moyers and his boss evidently wanted leverage in the event Goldwater tried to use the liaison against them. (He didn’t, as it happened.)
When that episode became public after Mr. Silberman testified, an irate Mr. Moyers called him and, with typical delicacy, accused him of falling for forged CIA memos. Mr. Silberman offered to study the matter and, should Mr. Moyers’s allegations pan out, he would publicly exonerate him. “There was a pause on the line and then he said, ‘I was very young. How will I explain this to my children?’ And then he rang off.”
Bill Moyers is disputably the king of unsubstantiated allegations against the Bush Administration. The only thing he despises as much as Karl Rove is a Christian house of worship. How his ass must be chafing now that the FOIA has exposed him as a little dirt-digging homophobic cretin; especially in light of the fact that no evidence has ever surfaced of Rove doing anything Moyers ever accused him of.
This video of a former Senior Presidential Adviser sliming another is especially SWEET.

Of course, it’s the fault of the “chattering class” on “cable television”. Barry Soetoro, again today, blamed “cable television” for people not supporting his Massive New Government Spending Bill dressed up as “economic stimulus”.
Now we know the reason for Barry’s overall approval being down and overall disapproval being up. Americans are too stupid to think for themselves.
Hey, Barry. Here’s a news flash. If it walks like a duck…..

Eric Holder outing himself as a race-baiter didn’t surprise me. The MSM’s double standard in dealing with Eric Holder’s repugnant race-baiting didn’t surprise me.
After all, this is the man who promoted the pardon of Marc Rich, a man who was a business partner of the Iranian government during the hostage crisis. This is the man who promoted the pardons of Weather Underground terrorists Susan Rosenberg and Linda Evans.
This is the man, who as Janet Reno’s Deputy AG, declined to address Jamie Gorelick’s “wall” between information sharing of governmental intelligence agencies.
It didn’t surprise me that during his speech to the USDOJ, that of the 18 Black Americans Eric Holder chose to name for their contributions to Black equal rights, NOT ONE OF THEM EVER WORE A U.S. MILITARY UNIFORM. It didn’t surprise me because he probably doesn’t even know about any of them. After all, like almost all of Barry Soetoro’s administration, Eric Holder is a retread from the Bill “I loathe the military” Clinton.
Let me help you Eric.
This is Sergeant William Harvey Carney. He was the FIRST AFRICAN AMERICAN TO EARN THE NATION’S HIGHEST AWARD, THE MEDAL OF HONOR.
This is Lt. Roger “Bill” Terry. HE IS A TUSKEGEE AIRMAN. HE IS A PATRIOT. HE WAS COURT MARTIALED FOR BREAKING DOWN RACIAL BARRIERS.

**Bumped up for update** (Below the snip)
The Likud Party is BAAACK and strong! Tuesday’s primaries in Israel bring in Moshe Feiglin, Benny Begin, and Moshe Ayalon, among others. Of course the watered-down to milquetoast, Kadima Party is having a hissy fit. Prime Minister Ehud (maybe if we give islamo-fascists the rest of Israel’s land, they’ll stop killing our children) Olmert said, “If Bibi, Begin, Ya’alon and Feiglin come to power, it will cause significant diplomatic damage to Israel.” Uh-huh, that’s the POINT, Ehud, or as I like to call you, the head of the John McCain wing of the Kadima/Likuds. You keep giving terrorists land and getting dead Israeli children in return. It’s WAY past time for “significant diplomatic damage”!
From the Jerusalum Post:
After the failure of his last-ditch effort to muster Kadima leader Tzipi Livni’s support for a unity government on Friday, President Shimon Peres formally entrusted Likud chairman Binyamin Netanyahu with the task of building a coalition.
Earlier, after emerging from a meeting with Peres, Livni announced that she had no intention of joining a broad coalition under Netanyahu, despite the Likud chairman’s assertion that he was willing to “go to great lengths” in order to induce Kadima to join his government.
“It appears that the coalition which has been formed in recent days lacks diplomatic vision,” Livni said after the meeting. The Kadima leader rejected the president’s plea that she reconsider joining a coalition comprised of the three largest parties – Kadima, Likud and Israeli Beiteinu – and asserted that a “broad coalition is worthless if it is not governed by values.”
Peres realizes the need for strength at this time in history. Since Barry Soetoro and his Brown Shirts have decided to “stand with” the enemies of Israel and the U.S., the “the political winds” have shifted “in an ugly direction“.
Shabtai Shavit, former chief of the Mossad intelligence agency, warned just 2 days ago: “I don’t believe there is a political solution which can be achieved through negotiations with Iran. My concern is that until Obama finishes his learning curve of the subject, the Iranians are going to have maybe the first or even more nuclear bombs.”
NYT, one day ago:
In their first appraisal of Iran’s nuclear program since President Obama took office, atomic inspectors have found that Iran recently understated by a third how much uranium it has enriched, United Nations officials said Thursday.
The officials also declared for the first time that the amount of uranium that Tehran had now amassed — more than a ton — was sufficient, with added purification, to make an atom bomb.
YEAH, BIBI!! NOT A MOMENT TOO SOON!

U.S. Rep. Tom Perriello (D-VA-5th), founder of Res Publica (If you aren’t a socialist, you’re selfish) and Avaaz (We hate Jews and you should, too), which is a spin-off combining Res Publica and MoveOn (We’re traitors and you should hate America, too), spoke at Martinsville High School yesterday.
The Martinsville Bulletin, owned by Robert and Elizabeth Haskell, who award grants to ACORN and convicted domestic terrorist Bernadine Dohrn, among others, ran a story today about Perriello’s visit.
“Sizing up the stimulus”-Perriello tells bill’s impact
If federal, state and local officials work together to use the funds from the $787 billion stimulus bill, the economy will begin to recover from this “very, very serious crisis,” 5th District U.S. Rep. Tom Perriello said Wednesday.
Perriello spoke at a forum at Martinsville High School. He explained some of the highlights of the bill and how Virginians will be helped, and then fielded questions about the stimulus bill and other subjects from more than a dozen people. Nearly 100 people attended the event, which lasted more than an hour. Here’s a photo of the “nearly 100 people”.
According to Perriello and a press release from his office, the stimulus bill:
• Provides tax relief for families and small businesses. More than 35 percent of the package will provide direct tax relief to 95 percent of American workers and spur job growth for businesses. (About that “direct tax relief”…It was cut from $500 for individuals and $1000 to couples down to $400 and $800. For 6 months, June-Dec, 2009, workers will get $13 more in their paychecks per week. In January 2010, that falls to $8.)
According to a new White House estimate, 7,800 jobs will be created or saved in the 5th District as a result of this stimulus package, 200 more than estimated earlier, said Jessica Barba, Perriello’s press secretary. (About those jobs…Small business tax benefit was gutted from $67 billion to only $4 billion. In place of relief for the little guy, a $3.2 billion tax break for General Motors Corp was added.)
Nita Hairston of Henry County was at the forum with her sons Benton and Bryant Hairston, 10th-graders at Martinsville High School who are in the JROTC program at the school. They want to go to Virginia Military Institute and enter the military.
She asked Perriello about the war in Afghanistan. Perriello said the United States needs a “force commitment” but needs to articulate its strategy and end goal. (Mrs. Hairston, you’ll notice your question wasn’t answered. Here’s why:
Veterans: Nearly all items for Veterans Affairs were reduced and the $2 billion the Senate wanted for VA construction was wiped out altogether. The VA did get one thing: $1 billion for medical facilities renovation and retooling.
Military construction: Cut and put into a general pot, a change from targeted money for each branch of the services. Army construction alone went from $600 million in the Senate and $900 million in the House to $180 million in the final bill. But negotiators compromised over a general military construction fund — the House wanted $3.75 billion while the Senate allocated $118 million and settled on $1.45 billion for all services. )
FBI: Senate had allocated $475 million but all was cut out of final bill.

The economic “crisis” which is sliding into a “catastrophe” wasn’t on Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi’s mind when she and her husband jetted off to Rome for a vacation. Our children and grandchildren are funding the Pelosis’ photo opportunities. By “our” children and grandchildren, I mean the children and grandchildren of those of us who pay federal taxes, earn an income, own a small business and pay our mortgages on time. By “us”, I mean the ones who the Speaker of the House of U.S. Representatives, Nancy Pelosi, decided behind a closed door have to pay labor unions, ACORN, Fannie and Freddie and banks for massive failures, mismanagement and fraud.
This trip is the ultimate “in your face”, “I won”, moment.
How appropriate and deserving that in return for her unmitigated arrogance, Mzzz Pelosi got her own “in your face” in the form of a “come to Jesus” moment.
TESTO IN LINGUA INGLESE
Following the General Audience the Holy Father briefly greeted Mrs Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the United States House of Representatives, together with her entourage.
His Holiness took the opportunity to speak of the requirements of the natural moral law and the Church’s consistent teaching on the dignity of human life from conception to natural death which enjoin all Catholics, and especially legislators, jurists and those responsible for the common good of society, to work in cooperation with all men and women of good will in creating a just system of laws capable of protecting human life at all stages of its development.
San Fran Nan undoubtedly thought this would be a great photo-op to prove her relevancy outside the communities of cross dressers, child rapists and partial birth abortionists. Ah, but the Holy Father does not appreciate arrogant duplicity.

Hey Matt, if you’re going to interview a historian, it might help to know a little history instead of just regurgitating talking points.
